POSTER INFORMATION This poster is a piece of English propaganda from The Second World War. The artwork has thought to have been created in the period of 1939-1946. However, the artist of this is unknown, according to The National Archives, it is belonged to Central Office of Information. MESSAGE It’s art style also compliments perfectly. The idea of two flats tying up symbolizes the lifeless carrying out such an essential human action when knowing the threat of Hitler. The splash brush strokes together with simple color scheme help to state the purpose of the poster, and reflect how serious and professional the aim is. Using its simple and brash as the government wished that the act of strangling “Hitlerism” would be. The Government wouldn’t want to panic anyone and make them to be scared when seeing this poster. Therefore, the art style reflects how simple and effortless banding together to face Hitler would be. DESIGN STYLE This kind of almost childlike art style with a very serious message is easily found in the early stages of design for propaganda poster. One of the main design elements is the way that the page is separated in two by the two blocks of color and it works really well to combine a hard hitting image with a few words that effectively convey a point.

COLOR SCHEME The poster is mainly using light blue, and light yellow aura. The meaning of the light blue are peace, serenity, ethereal, spiritual and infinity. The light yellow aura is associated with joy and freedom. Moreover, yellow colors relate to a sense of awakening and inspiration. The color blue together with aura yellow emphasize the message of this artwork with optimistic future and hope of freedom. The word "Hitlerism" colors with red and black background predicts strongly the death of Hitler's power if people around the world "together strangle Histlerism". Furthermore, the red and blue color in the poster's message show the connection of UK and Russia due to the main national flats color. VO PHUONG THAO - EDEXCEL 6

TOGETHER WE SHALL STRANGLE HITLERISM

bauhaus School of design


Staatliches Bauhaus commonly known simply as Bauhaus, was an art school in Germany that combined crafts and the fine arts, and was famous for the approach to design that it publicized and taught. It operated from 1919 to 1933. The German term “Bauhaus”— literally “construction house” — was understood as meaning “School of Building”.

The Bauhaus was founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar. In spite of its name and the fact that its founder was an architect, the Bauhaus did not have an architecture department during its first years of existence.

Bauhaus University Weimar (Built 1904–1911, designed by Henry van de Velde)

Bauhaus building in Dessau

The school existed in three German cities: Weimar from 1919 to 1925, Dessau from 1925 to 1932 and Berlin from 1932 to 1933, under three different architect-directors: Walter Gropius from 1919 to 1928, Hannes Meyer from 1928 to 1930 and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe from 1930 until 1933, was closed by its own leadership under pressure from the Nazi regime. Although the school was closed, the staff continued to spread its idealistic precepts as they left Germany and emigrated all over the world.

This was the motto of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, a proponent of minimalism in architecture. That which is less complicated is often better understood and more appreciated than what is more complicated; simplicity is preferable to complexity; brevity in communication is more effective than verbosity.

Herbert Bayer 1900 - 1985

In 1959, he designed his "fonetik alfabet", a phonetic alphabet, for English. It was sans-serif and without capital letters. He had special symbols for the endings "-ed, -ory, -ing, and -ion", as well as the digraphs "ch", "sh", and "ng". An underline indicated the doubling of a consonant in traditional orthography.

Herbert Bayer was an Austrian and American graphic designer, painter, photographer, sculptor, art director, environmental and interior designer, and architect, who was widely recognized as the last living member of the Bauhaus and was instrumental in the development of the Atlantic Richfield Company's corporate art collection until his death in 1985.

From 1925 to 1930, Bayer designed a geometric sans-serif Proposal for a Universal Typeface. These designs are now issued in digital form as Bayer Universal. The design also inspired "ITC Bauhaus" and "Architype Bayer", which bears comparison with the stylistically related typeface "Architype Schwitters". VISUAL COMMUNICATION IN ART & DESIGN

Standing Objects, 1936 In 1936, he designed a brochure for the Deutschland Ausstellung, an exhibition for tourists in Berlin during the 1936 Olympic Games. In 1937, works of Bayer's were included in the Nazi propaganda exhibition "Degenerate Art", upon which he left Germany.

In the spirit of reductive minimalism, Bayer developed a crisp visual style and adopted use of all-lowercase, sans serif typefaces for most Bauhaus publications.

Recycling is one of the best ways for you to have a positive impact on the world in which we live. Recycling is important to both the natural environment and us as waste has a huge negative impact on the natural environment. It reduces the need for raw materials so that the rainforests can be preserved. Recycling requires much less energy and therefore helps to preserve natural resources. 14
